Today’s post is all about some of the dangers of commercial deodorants, and why you should try doTERRA’s Natural Balance deodorant.
When it comes to most deodorants and antiperspirants, one of the most dangerous ingredients is aluminum. The stronger the antiperspirant, the higher concentration of aluminum. Keep in mind that located under the arm are the lymph nodes, and although I’m no doctor I’m pretty sure you want to keep those free of toxic chemicals such as ‘aluminum chloride hexahydrate’ and parabens or other harmful chemicals, which are found in commercial deodorants.
Some studies have linked exposure to the chemicals in most deodorants to increased cancer risk.
Some other possible risks:
-Increased risk of Alzheimers disease.
-Disruption of natural horomonal balance
-Damage to nervous system, liver, or heart.
-Higher chance of birth defects.
Now I’m not saying to forgo your use of deodorant, but I do have a much healthier solution, I use it and it actually works really well! The new Natural Deodorant with doTERRA Balance is exactly what the name describes: a natural underarm deodorant, infused with the doTERRA Balance® Grounding Blend. Free of potentially harmful ingredients like aluminum, parabens, phthalates, and talc, the Natural Deodorant absorbs moisture and deters odors while providing aromatherapy benefits from essential oils.
